Defeated the Construction of a Pee Dee Coal Plant


Santee Cooper has suspended permitting of the Pee Dee Coal Plant. With its decision, Santee Cooper joins a growing national trend of utilities and states abandoning new coal-fired power. Reduced overall demand for power, worsening mercury pollution in the state’s waterways, pending federal legislation to protect the climate from coal plant emissions, and proven power alternatives such as energy efficiency and renewable energy make leaving this coal plant behind forever the best choice for South Carolina.
